For me, the difference between travel photography and travel drawing is...
"... well, first of all, there is a big difference in the timing! When I draw, I remember it much better afterwards. Photos are very important to me so that I can look at the details again afterwards."

When I draw...
"... I discover a lot of new things. And at the same time, I always reach the limits of my skills. A constant back and forth."

Inspirations on my ‘travels’ have been, above all...
"... Christoph Niemann."

I would like to travel...
"... travel to Nepal and record the Himalayas there."

My reading for my next trip will include...
"... all the books that I wanted to read a long time ago! But the luggage is too heavy! I am just on tour and I have by Dmitrij Kapitelmann Das Lächeln meines unsichtbaren Vaters in my suitcase and by Paula Bulling / Anne König Bruchlinien."
